      OnGame - $0.30 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      SB: $39.77
      BB: $30.90
      UTG: $24.93
      MP: $48.84
      CO: $30.28
      Hero (BTN): $29.10

      Villain is 22/7, AF 0,6 over 61 hands

      SB posts SB $0.15, BB posts BB $0.30

      Pre Flop: ($0.45) Hero has A:club: K:heart:

      UTG raises to $0.90, fold, fold, Hero raises to $2.70, fold, fold, UTG calls $1.80

      Flop: ($5.85, 2 players) 5:spade: 6:heart: A:heart:
      UTG checks, Hero bets $3.90, UTG calls $3.90

      Turn: ($13.65, 2 players) Q:diamond:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($13.65, 2 players) J:spade:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      UTG shows J:heart: 8:heart: (One Pair, Jacks) (Pre 38%, Flop 33%, Turn 18%)
      Hero shows A:club: K:heart: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 62%, Flop 67%, Turn 82%)
      Hero wins $12.97

      The Q really scared me, but I think that I should bet/fold the turn for value and protection.

      Hello prevolsek,

      Preflop: What's the reason for 3betting against a UTG range who has PFR of 7?

      As played
      Postflop: Well, you are going to Call the turn anyways? So why not just Bet/Fold it on the turn and might even do it for value + protection from draw. At least also can pick the size and see free showdown with it most likely.

      Best Regards.
